    Thumbs up Translating the music

    Say when listening to music in a different language do you tend to translate the lyrics to better understand them? Or do you just listen to the song and don't care for the lyrics. Personally when I listen to my favourite bands which are german, I tend to translate the lyrics because they are well written and are sometimes touching. I know people who when listen to foreign music don't bother looking up the lyrics at all o.O;;

    I'll sing the songs in the original language(I memorize them after listening to it a few times), but I usually do look up lyrics, as I would at least like to know what I am singing.

    For songs in Spanish, I tend to just sing them or sometimes I try translating them for fun. Being a Spanish speaker makes this extremely easy and fun.

    For songs in other langauges such as French, Japanese, Bulgarian, Chinese, and Italian I tend to look up the words and translate the song myself (if it's not so well-known) or look up the translations for popular songs.


    Thanks for the sig Xey Oiz ^.^

    As a general rule, I like to know what I'm singing. This includes song in my native tongue that are sung unintelligibly. If I can't find a translation, or someone who can translate it, I'll do my best to do it myself...assuming it's a language with which I am familiar. There are some songs which are filled with double meanings which in turn make it difficult to translate them properly if you aren't familiar with the language and culture.

    The original version, in whatever language it is, won't ever be over classed by a translation. That's the reason why I rather prefer to sing foreign songs in their original language, as long as I'm willing to do an effort of memorizing.
